't bring up the deficit. paul ryan opposes your plan. >> i know it. >> he dissented. >> and so did the president. everybody opposed -- we pissed everyone in america. nobody's doing anything for us. >> at the risk of pissing you off, what would you say to them? >> tell them we have a leaderless government and he can lead. this gentleman can't govern. he's doing politics day and night. >> erskine bowles, same question to you. if had a chance to advise obama and biden on what you want to hear about the deficit and the fiscal cliff, what would you tell them to say? are you not hearing now? >> to lead. lead from the front. just take on this enormous problem we have with economic growth. the best way to take that on is to reform the tax code, broaden the base, simplify the code, wipe out these tax expenditures and use that money to reduce rates, to encourage growth, and also to bring down the deficit. that's really attacked these entitlement problems. slow the rate of health care. make social security sustainably solvent. we can't afford to spend more in the next 17 largest countries and
wants to see president obama. he want to try to brinbring attention to the national deficit and offering it up to help pay off the national deficit. >> the son of the trouble was campaigning on friday. joining volunteers at the republican had p headquarte in ohio. with the new license headquarters. and also sharing energy tips and sharing information about his father. the next presidential debate is on october 15th new york and next week, joe biden and paul brien will take the stage. and kron 4 will have that life. go to our new channel. comcast 193 for the latest news, weather and traffic updates and to watch all the presidential speeches. uninterrupted. and on digital 4.2. this radical moslem terror charges are in new-york. these men were extradited from england. he is facing charges of consume conspiracy. d in oregon. christine has more. >> radical extremists and four other men are right in the u.s. early saturday from london. they are facing terror charges went london saying that they could be extradited and immediately. some of these men are being held at the manhattan correctional
and that that, we can do that on a basis which won't increase the deficit. that was their position as i said for 99% -- >> but still his position -- >> hold on, joe, and you cannot do that as a mathematical matter without raising the tax burden on the middle class, it's not possible and all this debate about my studies and your studies is not possible, as bill clinton said at the democratic convention it's arithmetic. >> can we taxle the deficit without affecting the middle class? >> if i were vice president biden i'd put that back on the table and push it because it's too late to change your position 30 or 40 days before the election in a campaign that's gone, you know, for a year and a half. it's too late especially on an issue which you've been talking about every single day for those 18 months. it's too late. i'd take the view you can't change your position on something like that 30 days before the election, you can't change your position on repealing every fapset of obama ca facet of obama care or every facet of dodd-frank. we have a debate tonight, so to say nevermind, that doesn't wor
that they are not going to cut taxes in way that willed a to the deficit, and i'll bet they are also claim that they are not going to raise taxes on the middle class, but they'll give the middle class a tax break. all of those lies we have heard before. and obamacare is a big government program. i don't think joe can be too aggressive. he doesn't have to be obnoxious. that's not his style anyhow. but he has to take on every single one of those. the other thing i think is is important for joe biden, i believe, that he has got to remember, that this is not for him. nobody is going to vote for him or paul ryan. if you are going to vote for just joe biden or paul ryan. if you want to vote for paul ryan and joe biden, you can't do that. it's not about paul or joe, it's about barack obama and mitt romney. and joe biden has to keep bringing it back to the fundamental choices. move forward with obama or move backward with mitt romney. i think joe has to make that point over and over and over again. and then i think it is important for us to realize that in the past there have
national deficit has grown through $16 trillion. the president said he was gone to cut that in half, but it doubled under his watch. very disturbing is that when the president came into office there were 32 million americans on food stamps. today its 47 million. there is still an incredible number of ohioans and americans out there struggling. the choice is clear. we can have four more years like the last of zero four. what america needs is a real recovery. only romney and ryan can provide that. host: when the president took office we were losing 800,000 jobs a month. since the president took office, we have 5.5 million additional jobs. truck about the automobile recovering, he saved the automobile industry and 1/88 jobs in the state are reflective of the auto industry. i worked the railroad 41 years. the guys and women working there, they're happy, jumping up and down because they have employment. one out of eight jobs are connected to the auto industry. not only that, the government at the time, strickland, and the president came to and youngstown, my area, and it one of the last
money, at some point something bad happens. >> 180% of gdp, their deficit. we're 9%. so always a good idea to spend more money than you're take manage to try to get out of a recession. that's where you're at right now. so what you're doing is a government telling you that there will be inflation, we're going to keep interest rates very low. what that does, it encourages corporations to invest. the corporation sitting there with $2 trillion on their balance sheets and what they have to do, they have to invest to create jobs. the government is saying you can leave it there and wait for a disaster, but if you do, it will go down in value 4% every year and, therefore, encourage people to lower the dollar. that makes products worth more. so we're trying to encourage people to build products and plants. >> we had lloyd blankfein and simpson and bowles talking about the fiscal cliff. this is what lloyd blankfein had to say. >> i'd be a buyer of the market. goldman sachs would -- we not only value company, we're a company ourselves. we would be assuming that our business would grow, that comp
deficit in medicare. to save the programs, the republicans want to save them as much as anyone else, to save medicare and social security, they have to be reformed. but the other side is sticking their head in the sand and saying you want to destroy medicare. no, we are trying to preserve medicare. >>neil: this dates back to the reagan administration, senator, and the fact of the matter is, under republican and democratic presidents alike, even adjusted for inflation, the money going out far exceeds inflation year in and year out. that is not sustainable math. this comes down to an unpopular issue because then you are going presumably after seniors or you ericing the senior -- are risking the senior vote. i have been talking about changing the programs science i started running. i said inof thebly the age of eligibility when you begin receiving medicare and social security will have to gradually go up. the next generation may age and under. >>neil: what is the cut off age in people in their early 50's who should lock at getting it maybe in their middle to late 50's in what? >>guest:
would call these gimmicks, the full ten year cost of this bill has of $460 billion deficit. the second has a one half trillion dollar deficit. probably the most cynical gimmick in this bill is something that we all probably agree on. we don't think we should cut doctors' 21% next year. we stop those cuts from occurring every year for the last seven years. we all call this the toxics. well, according to your numbers it cost her her $71 billion. it was in the first iteration of all these bills. because it was a big price tag and made the score look bad, may look like a deficit, that provision was taken out and has been going on in stand-alone legislation. ignoring these costs does not remove them from the backs of taxpayers. hiding spending does not reduce spending. and so when you take a look of this is just as not add up. let's finish with the cost curve. we bending the cost curve down or up? well, if you look at your own chief actuary of medicare revenue up. he is time we are going up $222 billion, adding more to the unsustainable fiscal situation we have. and so when you take a look
talks with the deficit reduction packages the same way that paul ryan has. i thought it was very strong on that in terms of his command of the substance which made it harder for ryen to go out there and show himself, to have greater command. that was an area i think conservatives and republicans expected a little too much out of paul ryan. and where democrats could be proud of their guy against joe biden in terms of his command of a substance that he wasn't expected to necessarily have command of. >> listening to the romney campaign's reaction to this, heavy emphasis on biden's manners last night, on the laughing, the sort of dismissive attitude maybe. it seems to me the effect they're going for is making this the equivalent of al gore and the sighing in 2000 where that becomes the post-debate story. do you think that has attraction on the right, biden's manners? >> that's part of the discussion. i don't think anybody watched that debate and didn't think there were times he was smiling which didn't seem to be appropriate. particularly when they're talking about foreign policy and what w
administration does not really care about the deficit and how high it is getting. why would you raise the deficit when you owe so much money? it will bankrupt our country. host: what do you do a in redmond, ore.? caller: i am a full-time student at a community college and i also work at a fast-food restaurant to pay bills. host: where are you studying? caller: criminal-justice. host: where are you watching c- span at 6:00 a.m. in the morning in oregon? caller: i get up early allot. earlier, i was watching a different program, in b.c. i think, and i think there were a lot of very baidoa -- nbc, i think, and i think there were a lot of very biased reporters. i switched channels. host: is this your first time watching c-span? caller: no, it is now. i actually watched it a lot. host: that is there a studying criminal justice in redmond, ore.. next up is michael in springdale, another first-time voter. caller: i was flipping through the channels here and listening to a lot of individuals call in and one of the topics that came up is the military. and being a first-time voter, i want to say that as a v
creating debt. the facts are clear. obama's four deficits are the four largest in us history. he's adding almost as much debt as all 43 previous presidents -- combined. and over 30 cents of every dollar obama spends is borrowed. much of it from countries like china. he's not just wasting money he's borrowing it and then wasting it. we can't afford four more years. [ romney ] i'm mitt romney and i approve this message. [ mamale announcer ] we the people, the middle class who move our country forward, work hard raise families, and keep america strong. but mitt romney's budget plan will hurt the middle class, raising taxes on the average family by up to $2,000 while giving a tax break of $250,000 to multimillionaires. doesn't mitt romney understand we can't rebuild america by tearing down the middle class. priorities usa action is responsible for the content of this advertising. >> i could pretty much guarantee you will never see a scene like this again. a picture that will never be repeated. a space sh
of $3 trillion in deficit reductions, which is some combination of tax revenue and spending cuts. therein lies the problem. we have a situation where democrats have been loath to to target the deep spending cuts to domestic programs an impediment programs that would be needed to cut a deal, -- entitlement programs that would be needed to cut a deal, and republicans are loath to consider the idea of any sort of new tax revenue that could be added to the picture. so, how do you put this deal together in no way that makes a policy sense, but also would satisfy the political differences on either side? it really is difficult. if you look to the projections, people say if we do not do anything, this would be great for the nation put the deficit, because tax revenues would automatically go up, spending would go down, and our national deficit would nearly be cut in half. that is a great outcome. yes, it is, but the other hand, the economy, which is in a fragile state, would decline, and we've seen projections of a 0.5% reduction in gdp growth which experts say would put the economy in a
to cut the deficit in half in four years. we have four budget it is and four trillion dollar deficits. a debt crisis is coming and we can't keep spend borrowing like and spending money we don't have. leaders run to problems to fix problems. >> steve: i got this tweet. why was bush crusify biden didn't get information on the intelligence community and that is okay. >> steve: ultimately some polls went out and they did snap pollings. cnn paul ryan . cnbc. winner 20 points. >> brian: cbsdid joe biden. >> steve: they did a focus group for 50 people. >> gretchen: we have frank coming up. and we'll show you that. now the rest of the head lineups for friday. one month after ambassador stevens was ciled. lawrence pope is the new charge of affairs. he will represent. pope retired 12 years ago and an ambassador to chad and political advisor for the special command and special operations in the middle east. governor mitt romney getting a spiritual boost from billy graham. >> reverend graham added he would do everything to help him. franklin graham has provided council to every president since ha
where we can compromise and come to the middle and we must do that. we have a huge deficit and like i said earlier, a little amnesia how we got there but we are there and we have to deal with this. it's a must do and for the good of the country and same as senator, as tom, excuse me. i didn't mean to relegate you to senator. but i have children and grandchildren and we have got to do some things right for the future of this country. it's a privilege for us, all of us in this country. >> moderator: along those same lines congress and boswell what is the most important things that you think, the most important thing congress can do that would stimulate job growth or lift the overall economy? boswell: right now we are an agriculture stated we are much more. we are certainly in agriculture state and we don't have a farm bill. it comes up every five years and it's very important to iowa and all of the crop bearing fire for producing states in the middle was an across the country. we have to have a farm bill and there have been political posturing. the speaker -- mr. latham's best friend i'
the city's $300 million budget deficit without raising taxes and fees this year. in his annual budget speech, emanuel took aim at chicago's pensions, warning that without reform, the city could raise property taxes in the future by as much as 150%. that is tough news. >> that is tough sledding. in "the wall street journal," the deaths of four americans on the attack on the consulate in benghazi sparked political fighting during hearings on capitol hill yesterday. security officials charged with protecting the compound testified that requests to keep an american military team in libya were denied. and that protection was cut in the weeks leading up to the deadly assault. >> we were fighting a losing battle. we couldn't even keep what we had. we were not even allowed to keep what we had. >> it was abundantly clear, we were not going to get resources until the aftermath of an incident. >> this story is going to just grow. and it's looking very, very bad for the administration and the decisions that were made to cut security there. state department officials have said that keeping the tea

a credible plan to reduce our budget deficit, that's delivering very low interest rates for us in the markets at the moment. so that is the proof that there's international confidence in our plan. >> gilt yields are slightly lower. we're waiting for spain of course to ask for a bailout. spanish yields are lower. and if they stay in those sort of levels, spain will ride their luck for as long as they can. back to you. >> i was with you on that, ross. your audio guy was sleeping there for a second. we were going to step in and help you, but that was -- it was the eads, that's very unsettling what's happening with the eads. very unsettling. i'm anxious about how that finally plays out. >> no delay. >> just flew right over ross. >> flew right over ross. we may eventually have really quick flights again. did you see this guy who is going to jump out of balloon? he'll break the sound barrier. but as you're falling, since there's no -- what keeps you at terminal velocity is the air. if there's no air, they think he'll he break the speed of sound. >> why is he doing this? >> because he can. >> yeah,
of the conservative platform, upon which the gop now stands. the plan to slash the deficit by gutting social programs and his party is saying he built that. in the other corner, a granddaddy of the base. 29 years old, joe biden became one of the youngest people ever elected to the u.s. senate. he's been steep in the political gospel of the democratic party for 40 years. he's played key roles in u.s. foreign policy as a member and chairman of the foreign committee. middle east, southwest asia, the united states has been there in the last four decades. joe biden has too. of course, congressman paul ryan who chairs the house budget committee also likes to tout his foreign policy chops. >> i have more foreign policy experience coming into this job than president obama did coming into his. >> can you explain how do you have more foreign policy experience than senator obama did. he was on the foreign relations committee. >> norah, i voted to send men and women to war. i've been to iraq and afghanistan. i've met with our troops to get perspectives. i've been to the funerals, i've talked to the widows, talke
that worked extensively with ryan on issues like the deficit, medicare and social security. van holland understands ryan's policies but how he presents those. other senior staff is david axelrod as well as biden's former chief of staff and one time senator ted kaufmann. we're hearing about the book "the young guns" written by ryan and his colleagues outlining his deficit and debt policies. biden has been on the trail talking about it this book and these policies. these are attacks he's been honing over the last couple weeks and months. really what you see is biden addressing things like social security and medicare. these are arguments he's making on the stump now, but his staff and van holland right now are preparing him to respond to have a back and forth with ryan on those issues. >> carrie, thank you very much for the report there. the battle for the buckeye state. president obama is headed to ohio from san fran. he will speak at a rally later this afternoon at ohio state university. after a rally in iowa in just the past hour, mitt romney headed to ohio as well and will spend four
. that's the fourth straight year of trillion dollar plus deficits, but down from a year earlier. as for consumer i.o.u.'s, consumer credit grew at its fastest pace in three months.. expanding more than 8 percent in july.. to 2-point-7 trillion dollars. over on wall street, it was a mixed day. the dow gained 35...the nasdaq lost 13...the s&p is down a fraction. for the week.. the dow gained 1.3 percent. the nasdaq was up 6-tenths of a percent. the s- and-p added 1.4 percent this week. >> susie: joining us now with more anaysis on that jobs report... mark zandi...chief economist at moody's analytics. great to see you, mark. tell us about this 7.8%. does this mark the turning point in the job market? >> well, susie toverstates the case. i don't think the job market improved that much in the month of september. but i do think the job market is improving. it's improving enough to bring down unemployment. we're moving in the right direction but not quite as quickly as the data today would suggest. >> susie: 114,000 new jobs i mean, it's nice people are getting jobs, but it's flota rea
holes and put them into the highest income brackets rather than reducing the deficit. >> it is most regrettable that he is do that go. he is throwing a huge monkey wrench into that. and byes way, cap gains go up and he is doing his own constituents in new york. a great disservice. coming up next, since the president's debate fi asco, obaa has done nothing but debate big bird. >> and romney is climbing in the polls and all that coming up next. >>> welcome back to the kudlow report. in this half hour, president obama getting a ton of donations from china and a ton of foreign donors and it is illegal. why isn't he putting a stop to it? i don't see how they make it through each day. i couldn't do it without faith. do they vote blue or red? ralph read is going to tell us about that story. >> but first, mitt romney has bolted past president obama in the polls. leading 48-47. now he is closing in on the critical battleground states. >> good evening to you. just a few weeks ago team romney was considering giving up in ohio. maybe the most important state in 2012. now there the romney plan i
at the same time they're lecturing people about the deficit. we need to deal with the deficit and the folks at the very top should go back to paying the same rate they did during the clinton administration. when we had 20 million jobs created and the economy was doing great. so i thought this was a great night in exposing the really clear choice for the american people. you've got one guy who comes from scranton, pennsylvania. he's a fighter for the middle class. his policies back him up. you have another ticket that discovered the expression middle class in the last six months on the campaign trail. that was really clear. >> congressman chris van hollen of maryland. thank you very much for joining us tonight, sir. we know you're busy and a lot yet do. good luck winding down from being paul ryan, sir. i will say what you just saw there from congressman chris van hollen if you contrast that with us talking to david plouffe last week after the presidential debate and see the sort of democratic buoyancy out of this, what everybody said going into this was the democrats were looking for somethi
. daniels, indiana has balanced budgets. when governor daniels stepped into office, there was a deficit. at the same time, there were a variety of tactics like delaying payments. my question to my colleagues on the stage is, how will we avoid the mistakes of the past that allowed indiana to go so deep in red? how do we ensure the next administration produces honestly balanced budgets and preserves the fiscal integrity of the state of indiana. >> we have bipartisan control of government. it is essential. we have a republican house and senate and a democratic governor. i like your idea. i get kind of a kick, the congressmen and i have known each other for years. he is a fine person, but we disagree on many things. there is the candidate and the congressmen. humanist 86% of the votes. -- you missed 86% of the votes. and you would vote governor daniels' name. mitch daniels is a friend of mine, but he shows up to work every day. he is there. you are talking about our financial situation and when you were in congress and in control, president bush was in office, you voted five times to raise
that governor romney has that would in their estimation, lead to a $5 trillion deficit, they are citing outside besides for that number. and romney says it will be compensated for by loopholes. how he will justify the cuts? where will those revenue sources be made up? >> even stephanie cutter admitted it is not a $5 trillion tax cut. we have a 20% tax cut across the board, no matter what income level you fall into. but for those people at the higher levels of income, what governor rom no is proposing is closing loopholes and dedux for those individuals that will ultimately make the entire budget revenue neutral. >> shannon: when will we find out what they are? >> when a budget is put together, when the budget committee puts forward a budget, they don't put forward a budget with every loophole and deduction and every single -- they have a couple of numbers, they say here's the top number, here's the bottom number. you go to the ways & means committee and i sit down with a burch of people and i figure out how to get a tax cut across the board and close the loopholes so the people at the higher le
they think the spending side is easiest place to go to try and close the deficit. >> it isn't. what's occurring in my campaign there's a slogan we're going to have a balance budget that takes many town to 18% gdp and would savage everything people care about. so you've got to come in with the most controversial ones. that's again why the two most important and largest programs are controversialal to get after social security and medicare. when you're dealing with things that are controversialal that can be demagog, it's terribly important to start off with both a republican and a democrat on board who are willing to stay the course against often times opposition in your party. >> you're running against one of those spending cuts republicans who really wants to slash the budge fet, but is a beneficiary herself of the agriculture programs which was one of the biggest programs in nebraska. >> well, that's true. what i'm saying in this one is that the simple slogan balancing budget through a constitutional amendment isn't going to get the job done. it's going to take significant changes
started grilling him, a promise it will be deficit neutral and very vague promise it will be paid for. so chris wallace said as loop holes and deductions, that's sort of the key. and ryan basically said i don't have the time to get into all the math. >> now, now -- let me put you right there, steve. not joe biden, the vice president pacing him thursday night. he couldn't even get specifics there. the exchange between he and chris wallace on fox news. >> here's what we're saying -- >> we'll get to the deductions but the cut in tax rates. >> it's lower -- >> how much does that cost? >> it's revenue neutral. >> it's not neutral unless you take away the deduction. i'll get to that in a second. lowering the tax rately difference. >> >> you haven't give me the math. >> well i don't have the time -- it would take me too long to go through all of the math. >> it would take me too long to explain the math. this is a fox news sank ore saying you haven't given me the math. if he can't deal with that on a friendly station, how will he go up against vice president joe biden
to go after the deficit, he wasn't serious; whereas, they spent most of the campaign arguing that ryan and romney were radical, they wanted to overturn medicare, redo medicare. they just can't find their footing on solid argument so they are going back to the arguement that romney is a liar. the media amplified it. but it's not convincing argument when you have 70 million people watching what romney said. >> bret: they tried to jump on the statement that he made and romney saying there is no legislation with regard to abortion that i'm familiar with that would become part of my agenda. suggesting that he is trying to moderate on abortion. the romney spokeswoman saying that romney is proudly pro-life and pro-life president. romney saying it won't happen. >> there is nothing there. what romney is saying is i have an agenda on abortion. i will make legislation. there is no contradiction. if you look at the polls and 16-point flip among independents, toward romney, you've got to say as opposed to mara said not a foot in the dor. full leg, two arms, half a torso and a head. that is my medic
is recommending some of europe's most heavily in debt companies take more time to reduce deficits. moving too fast is counterproductive because it hurts the overall economy and checking in on the numbers right now, nearly all of the european markets well pretty mix but a lot of them are down this morning. meanwhile markets in the far east traded in a very narrow range overnight as investors wait for several economic reports. markets in japan and taiwan finished the day with small losses. hong kong finished up slightly. checking in on our numbers. futures indicate a higher opening across the board for the dow, nasdaq, and s & p. pretty small moves. but one company jp morgan reporting a good fourth quarter. >>> police are investigating a homicide. matt keller is live on the scene at rogers and junction avenues with new developments in the case. >> porter: you can see that officers are still here at the scene of the city's 37th homicide of the year. you can even see the mobile command unit here as well. the shooting happened here on rogers avenue just before 2:00 this morning. when officers arrived t
